Posted by Bill Smith on Thu, Nov 12, 2020 @ 02:11 PM

The situation is still uncertain, however, with President Trump filing lawsuits challenging the vote count in several states and refusing to concede the election at this time.

Assessing the Impact of President Trump’s 4 Executive Orders
Posted by Bill Smith on Wed, Aug 12, 2020 @ 05:39 PM

President Trump took unprecedented action over the past weekend signing four executive orders related to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. These orders include a payroll tax deferral, a temporary increase in unemployment benefits, a statement on reducing evictions, and a continuance of the pause for student loan payments and student loan interest. Several members of Congress have questioned the legal basis for certain of the executive orders, with the exception of the student loan moratorium. It is unclear whether or when Congress may bring a legal challenge to certain of the executive orders. In any case, various federal agencies must implement the executive orders before they can become effective.

Executive Order for Payroll Tax Holiday Puts Employers in No-Win Scenario
Posted by Bill Smith on Mon, Aug 10, 2020 @ 10:55 AM

On August 8, President Donald Trump signed four Executive Orders, one of which addresses a federal payroll tax holiday that he has sought to have included in any new coronavirus pandemic relief legislation. The President’s order is in response to the absence of movement by Congress on an additional stimulus package. The new order defers the withholding, deposit and payment of the employee’s share of federal OASDI (Social Security) payroll taxes (6.2%) from Sept. 1, 2020 through Dec. 31, 2020, on wages of employees whose annualized income is “generally” less than $100,000. While some have questioned President Trump’s legal authority to take this action, employers are placed in a precarious and potentially costly situation regardless of the legal outcome.

Changes have been made to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to give loan recipients more leeway to qualify for loan forgiveness. President Trump signed the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (PPPFA) into law after the House and Senate passed it last week.

In addition to providing more breathing room for the loan forgiveness requirements, the PPPFA increases the minimum loan maturity date to five years for PPP loan balances not forgiven. The following takes a deeper dive into what the PPP loan forgiveness requirement now looks like.

Trump's Tax Plan Eyes Dynamic Scoring to Finance Tax Cuts
Posted by Michael Corrente on Thu, Jun 22, 2017 @ 08:40 AM

How much economic growth will tax cuts create? The President’s outline of his tax proposals is based on the premise that tax cuts pay for themselves by stimulating the economy to create additional and offsetting tax revenues. There are varying ways to project the effect of tax policy on economic growth and tax revenue; the most popular method is called dynamic scoring. To bring dynamic scoring into focus, it is necessary to understand what it is, how it is calculated, and why it matters.

Trump Administration Outlines Tax Reform Plan
Posted by Michael Corrente on Thu, Apr 27, 2017 @ 08:12 AM

In less than 250 words, the Trump Administration outlined a tax reform plan on April 26. “This is going to be the biggest tax cut and the largest tax reform in the history of our country and we are committed to seeing this through,” said Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The outline includes changes to decrease the tax rates for individuals and businesses. It also calls for the repeal of the individual alternative minimum tax (AMT), the net investment income tax (NIIT), and the estate tax. Other than eliminating certain deductions, the proposal did not include any definitive measures for increasing revenue to offset the cuts. The plan also did not address non-tax matters, such as infrastructure spending or construction of a border wall.
